During the same period, sea level rise has increased significantly as carbon dioxide emissions have touched new heights.
WMO says efforts to reduce carbon emissions must be accelerate immediately.
This statement is a collection of the latest scientific research. Mainly on the causes and effects of an unprecedented increase in global warming in recent years.
The study acknowledges that the global temperature has increased by 1.1 degrees Celsius since 1850, and that it has increased between 2011 and 2015 by 0.2 degrees Celsius.
Climate change is accelerating because of us
The most disturbing statistics are probably the rise in sea level.
The average rate of increase since 1993 is 3.2 mm per year. However, from May 2014 to 2019, this increase has increased to five millimeters per year. During the ten years from 2007 to 2016, this increase was seen on average four mm per year.
WMO Secretary General Petrie Talas says “sea level rise has accelerated and we are concerned that the sudden decline in the icebergs of the Antarctic and Greenland will cause sea levels to rise sharply in the future.”
“As we saw this year’s devastating effects in the Bahamas and Mozambique this year, it increased sea level, causing a tropical storm that led to human tragedy and economic catastrophe”
The study also highlights the dangers facing the oceans. About 90% of the increase in temperature due to climate change goes to oceans. According to a WMO analysis, the maritime range recorded in 2018 is higher than the previous data. This research also points to the fact that wherever you look, one thing is clear that the effects of climate on human beings are due to humans. Events such as heat waves and forest fires increased.
“Climate change is accelerating because of us, which is a very dangerous path,” says Brian Haskins, chairman of the Grantham Institute at Imperial College London and a professor of meteorology at the University of Reading.
We need to hear the loud voices coming from school children. This is an emergency that requires urgent measures to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. Complete eradication and adapt to the inevitable changes in climate.
The purpose of the WMO report is to inform the United Nations Special Summit in New York on Monday about climate change.
According to UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres
According to UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres, several political leaders will participate in this one-day program, which is about action and not just words.
“I have asked the leaders not to make unrealistic speeches. To come up with concrete promises,” he said before the meeting. He added: ‘People want solutions, promises and actions. I expect several meaningful projects to be announced and disclosed over the next decade to reduce emissions dramatically and to reach a carbon threshold by 2050. Antonio Guterres said that with the pledge to reduce carbon emissions to zero by 2050. These countries should reduce subsidies for fossil fuels and stop construction of new coal-fired power plants.
On the other hand, the US, Brazil and Saudi Arabia will not participate in the program.
